Just seen the rheumatologist Dr Cardy at Worcester Royal for the first time since my GP diagnosed PMR. She believes I am too young to have the condition and says my symptoms match fibromyalgia and possibly some other disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis. She has now reduced my prednisalone to 15mg for 2 weeks then wants me to go to 10mg for 2 weeks, then 5mg then 0. I'm terrified I will go back to square one again when I was hoping I would get better rather than go back. I Just feel a bit helpless now.
